Photo sessions at SOA’s portfolio

Abalone House's new deck leading from Reuben's RestaurantThe past two weeks South of Africa’s guests might have seen scurrying in certain corners of our properties, and the odd flash of a camera light.  As recently reported on Facebook, we’ve been extremely busy with a photo session at each of our seventeen establishments, taking photographs of a variety of new, changed and upgraded rooms, venues and surroundings.

According to owner Johan Jansen van Vuuren, “we’ve listened to our guests’ comments and feedback.  The purpose of the shoot is to not only showcase our hotels and self-catering cottages, but also give the viewer the impression of what a getaway, conference and even wedding could be like here.”

Photographer Gareth Williams is behind the lens, and his fresh approach to South of Africa’s “Smörgåsbord” makes for an inviting image that draws the viewer in.  Williams first worked on South of Africa’s property Bid Huisie in Prince Albert, and ventured to Paternoster this past March to continue the photography of Abalone House & Spa, Oppidraai, Kliphuisie and the Seaside Cottages.  More photography followed at the Limpopo portfolio.

The new photographs will be published here on South of Africa’s official website, as well as on Facebook.  The first images of Abalone House’s new deck has already been published to rave reviews.
